Yet, it is not enough for the philosopher to only notice the elongation of an iron bar submitted to heat, he must know that metal under the influence of caloric radiations opens its pores, distends its molecules, and increases its surface and volume.
A calibrated steel bar is submitted to a continuous and progressive traction whose power is measured with the aid of a dynamograph.
